I have a gut feeling that Boston will win the World Series. The Rays have proven that they are capable of toppling Boston, but I don't know. I think we're seeing a dynasty unfold. Plus, none of the NL teams pose a serious threat.
Jerry Manuel will be returning as manager of the Mets. He'll fare well. The team's collapse was out of his hands, so I could see them making the postseason next year. They need to acquire the right talent in the offseason, though. In addition to relief, they need one more big bat. Delgado isn't going to hit 30 homeruns again, and Carlos Beltran is an intermittent power hitter.
